Dearest Crystal Lovers,
With all of the recent world events, we are reminded as healers, light workers, and peacekeepers that our light is needed now more than ever. We at HealingCrystals.com hope to remind you all that it is our differences that make us beautiful. Just as every stone has a distinct hue and quality, so does every human being; and each one is deserving of respect. Our prayers and thoughts are going out to victims of all recent attacks and bombings around the globe.
As we step fully into spring with summer in view, it may feel like time for some soul searching. The beauty of tragedy is that it does force us to recognize what is truly important to focus on in our daily lives. Mercury Retrograde is wrapping up at the beginning of May and forced us as always to slow down and reconsider our processes, our relationships and more. We have been stretched to reevaluate or incorporate something we may have thought we left behind.
During times like these, there are many ways you can protect and shield your energy using crystals. Amethyst is a wonderful stress-reliever, a protective stone and can be used to create a calm environment at home or work. Rose quartz is also great for attracting peace and love, and Turquoise is a wonderful protective stone that wards off evil and can accelerate emotional healing. Grounding and protective stones like Black Tourmaline and Smokey Quartz can help to shield and trasmute negative energy. To amplify the effects of these stones you can meditate with them, or simply carry them with you. (All of the links above are to stones we currently have on sale).
We are also excited to announce that we have a new eBook available for purchase on the website: Start Your Crystal Journey! is an eBook chock full of information for those beginning their crystal journey, or anyone who wishes to expand their crystal knowledge or learn something new! With over 70 pages of quality crystal insights and information, this eBook is sure to jump-start you on your path. Inside, you will find crystal basics, such as the myriad of crystal shapes; what different colors mean when it comes to crystals; what to do with your crystals once you have them; how to protect yourself, your family and your home/workplace from unwanted energies; how to clear your new crystals; and what to do in the event that a crystal is broken or lost. The book is only $6.95 and will be emailed upon purchase for immediate reading! Check it out here.
Want to search for crystal properties on-the-go? We also have a brand new app that you can download for FREE on your android or iPhone! Simply go to your app store and search for Healing Crystals Metaphysical Directory.
As summer approaches we hope you and yours will use and share with friends and family all of the tools available to you, to stay in the vibration of love and peace. Wishing you a glorious start to the summer!

Crystal Layout for Soul Searching
By Krista Mitchell
When I was first developing my crystal healing system I experimented on myself 24/7. Wearing crystals, sleeping with crystals, meditating with crystals, putting crystals in my water -- the combinations were endless, and I took notes every day.
What I’d most look forward to were my daily crystal healing layouts: designing and placing a crystal matrix on my body for specific energy therapy purposes. I’d lie down and then put crystals on each of my seven main chakras, in my hands, and also at my feet. I’d diffuse some essential oil, play gentle music, relax, and let all that juicy crystal energy flow through my body.
Crystal combinations and layouts have always been my thing: you can combine different crystal energies to affect a whole result, rather like mixing a bunch of different herbs together to make a healing tonic. I’ve designed all kinds of layouts in my time: psychic activation, spiritual awakening, emotional recovery from trauma, memory enhancement, weight loss, prosperity consciousness, self-confidence, anxiety + stress release, etc. You name it, I’ve probably addressed it with crystals.
The layout I’ve designed below can help you to connect to your soul-level guidance. This is particularly beneficial for when you have a big life decision to make, are questioning your purpose or path in life, need clear, intuitive guidance, or when you feel ready to co-create a life of joy, authenticity, abundance, and health, and are seeking solid direction.
It’s been my experience that our souls are not here to waste time or lead us astray. They are divinely designed to always guide us to our highest good. When we tune into our soul’s guidance and honor what comes through, it’s the only real guarantee we have that we’re making the right decision for ourselves.
Place the following layout on your body, starting at the root chakra and working upward, and then relax for 30-40 minutes:
Root: nuumite (self-mastery) + elestial quartz (grounding + connection to Spirit)
Sacral: fire opal (empowerment + spiritual passion)
Solar plexus: citrine (joy)
Heart: seraphinite (angelic love + courage)
Throat: aquamarine (to hear + honor your truth)
3rd eye: sugilite or moldavite (heightened psychic awareness + healing + transformation)
Crown: selenite (purity) + moonstone (gentle insight)
If you have questions about working with this layout, or want to know more about my upcoming online Crystal Healing Certification program, please visit my website www.krista-mitchell.com or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Using Crystals to Enhance Your Yoga Practice
By Jenn Morgan, The Soul Filled Yogi
If you are a new or long time yogi, you know that there are many tools you can use to amplify the quality of your practice. Yoga is so much more than becoming more flexible, cultivating focus, or even breath work. It is all those things but even more so, a practice of becoming more aware and more spiritually connected to Source. I use tools like essential oils and crystals in my yoga and meditation practice daily because I know the value in using these tools to tap into the Divine. If you too are looking to incorporate these things, here are some helpful tips to get you started.
Try starting your yoga practice in meditation or with pranayama, breath work. The slower you move the more energy you will be able to tangibly pick up from your crystals.
Choose a crystal that amplifies energy or spiritual connection for this part of your practice. Carnelian is a wonderful energetic and grounding stone. Clear Quartz is a crown chakra crystal, great for tapping into the Universal flow. Both of these are a perfect fit - separate or together - for the integration of a yoga practice.
Sit in a seated, or reclined position and hold one or both of these crystals in your non-dominant hand. Focus on your breath or begin 3-part breath. See if during this time you can sense more energy coming into your body and more ease.
When you are finished with this portion of the practice (after 5-7 minutes), close by taking a few deep inhales and exhales out of your mouth. Place your two crystals at the front of your mat and begin the moving part of your practice.
Try a crystal grid around your yoga mat during your flow practice.
Choose a crystal grid depending on your focus or needs for the day. Here are a few to get you started:
If you are working on self-love and healing, try rose quartz and clear quartz. Place 2 clear quartz at the top and bottom of your mat and 2 rose quartz on each side.
If you are working on more calm and peace, try green calcite, and amethyst. Place 2 green calcite at the top and bottom of your mat and 2 amethyst on each side.
If you are working on getting grounded, try black tourmaline, and smokey quartz. Place 2 black tourmaline at the top and bottom of your mat and 2 smokey quartz on each side.
When using a crystal grid make sure to activate your crystals by connecting them to yourself (you are acting as the generator crystal which typically would be in the center.)
Try adding in essential oils throughout your practice to balance emotions and cultivate more awareness.
Use two oils during your practice - one in the beginning and one at the end.
The starting oil should be used to increase energy or focus (citrus, peppermint, frankincense).
The closing oil should be used for balance or grounding (balance blend, white fir (all evergreen trees) cedarwood, sandlewood, lavender, serenity blend).
Always use high grade oils. Many oils on the market are full of fillers and additives and are not meant for topical use. Keep oils away from your eyes. Apply on your feet or diffuse for best use.
I hope that these tips serve you well! Good luck amplifying and cultivating an even deeper yoga practice.

Transmute Negative Emotions with One Simple Shift!
By Rachael Marie Shaffer of UrbanEmpath.com
Many people are harsh critics of themselves, and it gets in their way. I, too, have been a victim of mean-spirited, judgmental, and unoriginal self-assessment. The same insults and profanities would play in a continuous loop in my internal ear, until I learned that I could break the pattern consciously. When I made the discovery that I was creating all of the suffering in my life, I tried countless techniques to address the problem. However, that label- "problem"- and the practice of focusing on what I was doing "wrong" was not a very empowering approach to self-love. The only "problem" was that I was missing some pertinent information about the mechanics of the headquarters of my operating system.
What I've since learned is that the brain continuously evaluates through the process of inquiry. In other words, it's constantly asking questions to process and digest its assessment of our environment, our performance, our relationships, whether we should fight, flee, or freeze, etc. It will then search for cues in our surroundings and our memory banks for data that supports the basis of the question presented. This evaluation will then elicit an emotional response to the brain's conclusion.
For the most part, these questions and associations have been programmed through repetition and take place under the radar of our conscious minds. People who often limit themselves subconsciously and experience low-vibrational emotions have the tendency to habitually ask low quality questions. This is great news! We can set ourselves up for joy, gratitude, euphoria, and other high vibrational emotions simply by deliberately and consciously increasing the frequency that we pose the appropriate questions, which will pull our focus toward the evidence of (or opportunity for) that desired response. For example, I consistently ask, "How did I make the world a better place today?" every night when I come home and decompress from the work day. This allows me to celebrate my perceived successes rather than the "mistakes" I've made or ways I was "victimized". My awareness that I will be consciously asking myself this question in the evening pushes me to seek out and act on opportunities to give during my day. Then during my evening inquiry, I am able to pull up data that supports the idea of having achieved my goal to help others. I associate that positive reaction with my abilities and character, which inevitably raises my level of self-esteem.
When you build momentum in any direction through regular practice, it quickly shifts the direction of your life. Change is inevitable, so why not choose to make progress in a conscious way? If you're experiencing suffering of any kind, I assure you that, in part, it is because you are asking a low quality question, such as "Why me?" or "How could I be so stupid?" Replace those stale and stagnant questions with more useful ones, which may sound more like "What did I learn from this?" or "What will I change about my approach the next time this situation presents itself?" Progress really is that simple. Begin by consciously asking yourself a high quality question once in the morning and again at night. Then ask two. Then three. Eventually, I recommend having a set of 8 to 10 questions that you ask yourself once in the morning and once in the evening that invite you to focus on attitudes and behaviors in which you place immense importance. What are some questions you could ask yourself to sustain your focus in a desired direction? FREE YOURSELF once and for all from the debilitating, pessimistic patterning of asking low value questions!

Jenn Morgan, The Soul Filled Yogi has been a soul searcher since childhood. She began learning about crystals and their properties as the age of 7, and always felt a strong connection to Angels and Mother Nature. But, like a lot of spiritual, indigo or crystal kids, as time went on, she lost connection with this side of herself.
This deep spiritual connection was opened again for her many years later through yoga at a critical time in Jenn’s life when she was struggling with an eating disorder. Jenn was a professional model in New York City from the age of 15-21. This career left her with many unhealthy habits and beliefs. Yoga taught her mindfulness, inner strength, and helped her to remove blockages, and old belief systems that were keeping her in a fear and doubt mindset.
